Pirates, a Jump House, Elegant Wedding Ideas and Beach Party Fun all at Ben Franklin Crafts and Frame in Bonney Lake, February 23rd
Planning an event can challenge most people, whether it is a birthday party for your little 5-year-old princess or a formal wedding for 300. Ben Franklin Crafts and Frame Shop in Bonney Lake is always ready to assist you with crafts and event planning needs, but this month they are ramping it up!
On Saturday, February 23rd, from 10am - 5pm, Ben Franklin Crafts will be hosting a Party, Wedding, and Event Expo. Approximately 20 local event-related vendors will be joining them in helping you create ideas for hosting your yearly events.
Ben Franklin Crafts has been a fixture of the plateau for more than 20 years, but many people still aren’t aware of all it has to offer. During this time, independent and local owner Adrian Taylor has listened to the words of his customers and works to cater the store’s products to meet the needs and wants of his community. This is part of the reason the Event Expo is taking place.
“We get a lot of questions about how to make invitations, thank you cards, party activities and decorations, and all-things-wedding,” says Christy Fuller, Class and Event Coordinator. “We are having the Expo to let our community know that, not only do we have supplies to host an extraordinary event, we also have a wonderful staff to assist you with all of the how-to’s as well.
The Party, Wedding, and Event Expo will have examples of products for Save the Date cards and invitations, decorations, gifts and favors, and various ways to keep memories of the event documented to enjoy for years to come.
The Point Defiance Pirates will be in store for photo ops at the “photo booth” area along with a pretty princess backdrop as well. The event will focus on birthdays, weddings and other formal events, large group celebrations, outdoor and/or informal parties, and corporate events. There will be a jump house from Super Jump Party Zone, food sampling from Applebee’s and Dickey’s BBQ, and representatives on hand from places to host pre-wedding parties, like a spa day at the Little Red Dress Salon & Boutique. A make-up expert from Mary Kay offering wedding day “do’s and don’ts” will be on hand, as well as a diamond expert and jewelry designer from Chipper’s Jewelers with ring ideas. With photographers, graphic designers and more you won’t want to miss this expo!
